Description: In three days 10 teams of students designed and implemented actions and campaigns to generate student awareness and inspire involvement in the university's sustainability goals. The teams used Syracuse University's CAP (Climate Action Plan) as a jumping off point for putting their design and communication skills to work to educate and involve their peers. This was a weekend-long dive: quick and dirty design work that included sticker campaigns, typographic installations, product manipulation, stencils, etc.

"The purpose of this charrette was to get students connected to sustainability at Syracuse to get them activating their peers in the very compressed time frame of a weekend. I loved how the charrette connecting the students at the university to the city at large because often these two don't mix, which is a real problem. I also valued how the students made campaigns that spoke to their peers, in the language of their peers. This was a great experience for us as teachers, activists and artists." - Susannah Sayler
